Ice hockey star Leon Draisaitl has led his Edmonton Oilers to victory in the North American professional league NHL with a “buzzer beater” in literally the last second.
Germany’s Sportsman of the Year scored 0.7 seconds before the final siren in a 4-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets. It was the latest game-winning goal in regulation time in Edmonton’s club history.
